The January 2012 issue of Speculative Grammarian--the premier
scholarly journal featuring research in the neglected field of satirical
linguistics--is now available online for your browsing pleasure.

http://SpecGram.com/CLXIII.4/

This issue includes many excellent articles, including a study of an
unusual sound change, another resounding success for the Slater
Method, and a fascinating study by young linguists-in-training--along
with the usual collection of letters from our readers, puzzles,
advertisements, and more...

Next time (February 2012), we will have another all-new issue of
Speculative Grammarian.

Enjoy!
